Technology Lab

Every Thursday afternoon we take the long walk to the other wing so that we can all log on to computers at the same time in the technology lab. This process is quite involved and requires knowing your way around a keyboard, knowing how to spell your first and last name as well as the password, finding software that is on the schools drive (this can be several steps), using a mouse accurately, and using the internet. We have recently learned the difference between various internet browsers and how one of our favorite authors web sites responds or doesn't respond depending upon which browser we choose.

Being native citizens to technology sure speeds up the learning curve! These children are doing all of the above and more. They are beginning to learn how to save files, name them, and keep them in a folder structure. Amazing! Before too long I'll be introducing email and they will begin communicating with each other and the outside world via the written word.
Sometimes we stand at our workstation. Helps when jumping for joy!

That is some very intense focus going on there.

Working together . . . love this one so much.
